  1. On Make Another World, Idlewild dare listeners to ignore them with thrashing tracks like the punk/disco mash-up ''No Emotion.''
  2. 70
    The powerful tunes make this an odd thing: a subtle album, fit for stadiums. [Mar 2007, p.83]
  3. Make Another World finds Idlewild balancing their twin loves of volatile angst-rock and vivacious indie-pop neatly and professionally.
  4. For Idlewild fans, especially of the older school, there is more than enough here to warrant a pilgrimage to your local record shop.
  5. Make Another World falls off dramatically after the solid first half. [#17, p.91]
  6. 60
    Sadly, there's little to propel them to radio ubiquity or challenge the Britrock big hitters, but then, maybe, that's the whole point. [Mar 2007, p.95]
  7. Woomble... shows an innate inability to keep pace, vocally and emotionally, with the thrusting guitars, driving drums and push toward intensity the band bids for.
